Hazel,

The first and important part of the equation of reliably marketing a product is to have the right product (i.e., your web site). So you need to ensure your site has strong foundations—otherwise, the building will collapse one day or later.

In order to build long-lasting traffic from search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing), it’s very important to do your homework—or make sure you did it right—, as follows:

—1. The minimum you can’t ignore—

First, fake sure search engines are fully aware of your site and pages by managing proactively the relationship with them (see my answer to “How to add your webpage to search engine?” in the source section below).

Second, you cannot improve something you don’t monitor. So I strongly suggest you create a Google Analytics account (http://www.google.com/analytics/, it’s free) and embed the tracking code iin your pages to monitor vital signs of your site (e.g., number of visits, referring sites, keywords searched).

—2. Building good foundations for global search—

Implement search engine optimization (SEO) best practices to meet demand (visitors’ searches) with an offer (unique content) (see the source section below for the link to the self-explanatory “Google’s SEO Starter Guide”—a resource I strongly recommend to read). This mainly includes:
—Identifying relevant topics through analysis of searched keywords
—Leveraging the right keywords in your pages (e.g., title, description, and keywords metatags)
—Writing content on identified relevant topics

IMPORTANT NOTE—Take a closer look at your website through the lens of the Google’s SEO Starter Guide to find out where you can improve it (e.g., page name, page title, description, headers [h1, h2, etc.], content).

—3. Ensuring local findability—

Create a profile for your business in search engines’ local business directories (this one is also part of the “How to add your webpage to search engine?”). You should provide info for ALL the fields to have your profile flagged as complete, and most importantly a link to your website.

—4. Connecting with your audience directly where it is—

Leverage social media. Create an account in platforms like Facebook and Twitter, start a blog, and keep up the good work by making all of them grow. Search forums—the most overlooked social place—for post related to your business. Bookmark your site for specific topics/tags in sharing platforms like Digg and Delicious. You can also add the ShareThis widget to your site as a wrap of all the social features enumerated above.

—5. Taking your initiative to the next level—

Start a Pay-per-Click (PPC) campaign—like Google AdWords or Yahoo Paid Search. It’s really affordable for local businesses. Indeed, it may cost you—a strong suggestion from my own experience—a max daily budget of $5 to generate 5-10 clicks a day, which coupled with a coupon-based ad campaign—e.g., 15% off your next purchase of equipment—would allow you to measure accurately your campaign return on investment (ROI). And furthermore, you’ll have fun.

Once you start making your website more search engine friendly, you will start reaping benefit from it.

5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!

In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.


Catchy Headlines
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.

A business Model gives a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.

Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.

Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.

The more the Business Model Analysis a person does, the more exposed he gets to real life corporate situations.
Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.


Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).

Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.
